Commentary words by Sky Radebe:
This poem was inspired by heartbreak. Heartbreak is usually associated with losing a family member or spouse, though losing a parent, child, pet, lover or close friend can all "break one's heart" and it is frequently experienced during grief and bereavement. The phrase refers to the physical pain one may feel in the chest as a result of the loss, although it also by extension includes the emotional trauma of loss even where it is not experienced as somatic pain. Although "heartbreak" ordinarily does not imply any physical defect in the heart it is what carried this poem. This was meant to be a duet like Familiar Stanger and Hard Times however did have the balls to record my part I guess Stax did a good job and I would have messed things up if I did. Dankie Stax!
